endocavitary soak station(1)
I need some advice on endocavitary probe (vaginal probe) soak station. We currently have a probe but no way to clean it except central supply. I remember hearing about a non-toxic hydrogen peroxide cleaning station at ACEP meeting last year. Does anyone have any info and/or experience about this? I'd also welcome information regarding other systems in use. We are a medium-sized community ED with a small number of providers using the machine hoping to grow. I have been offered an old ultrasound department soak station but it requires manual operation i.e. a tech moving it between soaks for specified time periods and may need ventilation. Alternatively our central supply could help us out with a turn-around time of about 1hr but I am not sure about the long-term feasibility of this option.
As always, thanks for all your input.
